So, I can apparently knit a sock in less than 3 days. However, it doesn’t match.
Somehow, though I used the exact same yarn, on the exact same needles, knit them back to back with no break in between, AND they’re the exact same number of stitches (yes I triple counted), the second sock is bigger (it’s the one on the right). Don’t quite know how that happened. I’m debating ripping back, because, honestly, it’s too big. I’m not sure what to do. I’m really not. But I’m not happy with it. I’m leaning towards ripping it out. I’ll probably decide over the weekend. At least I know that I won’t need more yarn, since it’s supposed to be SMALLER.
But really, ripping it out would mean ripping out the whole sock, because it doesn’t match all the way down to the toe. I guess I just kind of ignored the fact that something wasn’t quite right, when, when I finished the toe decreases, I’d already moved onto another color where on the first one I hadn’t yet. But of course, I just blithely carried on and now I’m stuck with two socks of different proportions.
Any suggestions would be welcome.
For now, I’m going to sleep on it. I’m getting up early so that I can watch the new episode of Sailor Moon Crystal live (it’s 6AM my time). Have I mentioned recently I’m a total nerd?
PS: I organized yarn today! And cleaned. But the yarn is prettier. 🙂
